I’m doing a little super late night blogging here…trying to get it in before midnight. Today marked the last day of January and tomorrow…as in Friday…is Sol’s birthday. The night before a birthday always makes for a late night…always.
So one of my goals for 2013 was to set monthly running goals. There was no rhyme or reason to the number I chose for January…55 miles…but I am happy to report that I logged 58.4 miles. I picked up some extra miles this week when I started running with my niece Campbell and nephew Cooper…I think I may have found some new running buddies.
Some call it sweating, but I call it glowing. Boom.
For February I am going to tackle 62 miles…I actually put a little thought into this number, so we’ll see how it goes.
Other than my rad running shoes that I have talked about far too much, my number one running necessity is my headband. Now I have been through quite a few headbands…I have tried them all and then my Zumba instructor Janet told me about these headbands from banded2gether.com and the great cause they help support. Well at that moment the heavens opened and a choir of angels began to sing Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical”. These are the best headbands I have ever had and I now own three of them.
The.Best.Headband.Ever. Serious. I mean it. Mark it. Go check them out.
Tonight we did a little pre-birthday partying at Chuck E Cheese. We decided to skip out on the craziness of CC on a Friday night…we made such a wise choice. It was awesome. When Sol decided that was what he wanted to do for his birthday…pretty sure Josh and I high-fived. I know there are some haters out there, but goodness, we love Chuck E Cheese. The pizza. The games. The tickets. The crappy prizes. The crazy kiddos running mad wild. The skee ball. And my infamous battle to break the record on the basketball game. Tonight the high score was 76…I got 72…two times in a row. New arch nemesis. It was all glorious.
That blur is Sol…he was a crazy pitching machine tonight. Dude’s got an arm.
Now I need to go to bed. I just finished up Sol’s cupcakes…which I topped with pencil sharpeners. I’m serious. You do what you gotta do sometimes. And Josh just got done putting up his birthday door.
Amon is teething so I’m sure Josh and I will be playing ‘rock, paper, scissors’ in the middle of the night to see who has to get up to handle that little hot mess. So to bed I go. Hope you had a good Thursday…the weekend is here. Word.
Happy Super Late Thursday Night.
